Lucky for Rosenthal there was no hint of these issues prior to signing the contract with Oakland

 

Have to assume this is just Brad Pitt getting out ahead of undervaluing closers as the new market inefficiency.

There's been some Melancon chest thumpers in here. Lets see if Coach sends him out vs L,L,R,L in the 9th

 

Edit: Looks like he is warming up, Pomeranz sat down.

Also lucky for Oakland it doesn't look like they are in need of a closer this year with their current pace of 0 - 162.

Hudson could still be available - someone to check in on, in advance of a DH.

Unfortunately the WW is picked pretty clean already as it's a 16 team SV+HLD league. I ended up grabbing graveman. Throwing 97 as an RP, per FG.

Why not. Can't be worse than the ghost of Devenski.

Karinchak warming up for the 8th inning, Clase looking like he might get the save opportunity? Although this indians lineup is terrible and I doubt they're going to be having many save opportunities this year

Every time I see this sentiment I feel the inclination to point out that overall team victories corresponds far more weakly than one would think with saves and save opportunities.  It's such a weak correlation that in almost all circumstances you can simply discard it as a consideration.

**Note:  this is not the case for holds, which correlates rather more strongly with overall team record.  

****IIRC, every ten percentage point increase in win percentage above  40% correlates to something like only .7 additional save opportunities.  This is so miniscule you are pretty safe ignoring it.  I can't find the stat right now, but I think holds is a lot higher, something like 1.5-2.5 additional save hold opportunities.  That actually is somewhat meaningful when you're talking about the differential between a 69 win team vs. a 92 win team.

So Indians are gonna win what 75 games? Probably be about half save ops. Yeah no need for those on anyone's team.😉

I'd still hold Classe or kaeinchak until the situation becomes more clear.   I mean, there hasn't even been a save .opp

Amir Garrett 4 ER in 11-0 non save situation.

He's looked awful in his limited appearances thus far. Sims has looked incredible. Amir looked great in spring and talked a big game, but I can't see how they let him get the next chance. He's blown his opportunity, I think.

And now we finally get a Cleveland save situation. This Clase owner is hoping for a two-inning save. Will we see Wittgren?

It wouldn’t count as a save it would count as a win, which is still nice

Clase is just pure sexy filth naughty McNasty.

Having watched both of them today, let alone recent history, one is in a different class. A different Clase if you will. (K was helped mightily by blue to keep from the bases loaded, it's been settled. Francona has eyes, he see's the filth.)

Sims wants to close too, he just didn’t yap it up. Instead he’s just showed it with his performance. 
 

Holland implosion ...lol
